SSAS Store Forecasting data in the cube

Hello Experts Exchange
I am developing a Finance cube, I'm trying to mimic the same functionality as SAP BPC.

In Excel the users look at the data in the SAP BPC cube and can view and update the forecasting data.

How do I do this in a SSAS? Is there any document that explain how to do it?

Regards

"The solutions and answers provided on Experts Exchange have been extremely helpful to me over the last few years. I wear a lot of hats - Developer, Database Administrator, Help Desk, etc., so I know a lot of things but not a lot about one thing. Experts Exchange gives me answers from people who do know a lot about one thing, in a easy to use platform." -Todd S.

You could use native SSAS to browse the cubes as described here:

If you want some HTML client to view SSAS data you could use something like Cognos or Tableau
